Mysteries Below Ground @ Tallahassee Museum
Jun 11 – Dec 31 all-day
Mysteries Below Ground @ Tallahassee Museum | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

In the first comprehensive and complete exhibit of its kind, Mysteries Below Ground: The Architecture of Ant Nests explores the intricate workings of 25 underground ant nests. This exhibit will reveal the enormous range of size and complexity of ant nest structure and reflects the range of scales in which ants live their lives. The exhibit also dives into Dr. Walter Tschinkel’s method of metal casting and the ways in which metal casting reveals a complete, precise and detailed version of ant nest architecture. Dr. Tschinkel’s casts have been featured in 16 museums around the world, from Paris to Hong Kong, including two casts at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. This exhibit will only be here until December 31, 2018, so don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity.

ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS OF DEEP LEARNING– RAZOR Lecture Series @ Challenger Learning Center of Tallahassee
Oct 16 @ 7:00 pm
ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS OF DEEP LEARNING– RAZOR Lecture Series @ Challenger Learning Center of Tallahassee | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

Simon Foo, Ph.D. | Professor and Chair | Electrical and Computer Engineering | FAMU-FSU College of Engineering
This talk discusses challenging engineering problems and some possible solutions using machine intelligence. For example, with the recent advances in machine learning such as deep learning, it is now possible for autonomous vehicles or self-driving cars to have real-time detection and recognition of pedestrians, animals, obstructions as well as other vehicles. The same technology could be used in other engineering applications requiring object detection and pattern recognition.
Simon Y. Foo, Ph.D., is a tenured Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Florida A&M University and Florida State University. He is the former ECE department Chair from 2010 to 2018. His research contributions have been in the areas of computational intelligence especially neural networks, genetic algorithms, and fuzzy logic. His current research focuses on real-time object detection and recognition using deep learning. He is also active in research on photovoltaics, particularly high-efficiency multi-junction III-V compound solar cells and perovskite-based polymer solar cells. Dr. Foo has authored or co-authored over 100 refereed technical papers, was awarded a patent on high efficiency multi-junction solar cells, and contributed to two book chapters. He has also graduated more than 30 MS and PhD students. He is the Principal Investigator of at least 20 funded research projects with total funding of over 3 million dollars. His primary research sponsors include the National Security Agency, National Science Foundation, U. S. Air Force, Boeing Aircraft Company, and the Florida Department of Transportation. He has served as a technical advisor to Airbus in the area of real-time fire detection in aircraft cargo bays. He has won several awards such as the “Engineering Research Awards” (twice) from the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering, Tau Beta Pi “Teacher of the Year” award, and “Best Paper” awards. He is a member of Eta Kappa Nu Electrical Engineering Honor Society.
